Stylish Barn Lighting for Modern Tastes
The photos today come courtesy of a recent feature on This Old House online. From what started as a stripped down, bare bones (and barely decorated) kitchen, soon received an extreme transformation by its owners in Philadelphia. As with many older Rowhouses, the rooms had been separated by numerous walls, not allowing much open space for entertaining or larger families. Wanting to incorporate as many original and natural elements as they could (like a built in hutch), the owners found matching cabinet doors and utilized reclaimed fir as the center island counter top. Stainless steel appliances pair with patterned cement floor tiles and vintage lighting to complete the room – ultimately providing ‘period charm with contemporary function.
